Transformers: United, Cybertron Mode Bumblebee - Review

Hey all, it's Novelty again, from Toy a Day.  Well, this is another Bumblebee review, so as I promised 3B, I'll add the review here on his site instead of my own as a guest review.  And this one is going to be a treat for normal readers of Killer B Hive, because it's a toy that's from across the pacific.  Yup, this is a TakaraTomy Transformers toy.

WWE Rumblers, Triple H & Shawn Michaels - Review

Most of the focus on the Hive goes to 6-7" inch action figures, but every now-and-then I like to try out something different. Today I'm taking a look at some figures that are mainly targeted at small children, but are proving quite popular with "Adult Collectors" as well. I'm referring to the 2.25", semi-articulated action figures that can be found pretty much everywhere. For review today are two figures from Mattel's WWE Rumblers, Triple H and Shawn Michaels.

Green Lantern Classics, Manhunters - Review

Ah, Green Lantern. How we do so love you... and so does Mattel! Especially in the year you receive your very own movie!

Yes, friends, whether you love him or hate him, Green Lantern Hal Jordan (and his 3600 space sectors worth of cronies and enemies) is everywhere this year. Mattel's even created a spinoff line of their ever-popular DC Universe Classics focusing solely on GL-related characters. Today's review takes a look at the Manhunter Robot from the first wave!

WWE Legends, "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan - Review

I'll admit that even though I wouldn't mind it (if I had the money), I'm not a completist. Because I actively collect several different toylines, I pick and chose, I narrow down the figures I want (or at least try to) and only buy those. As regular readers of the Hive already know, I really love Mattel's WWE Legends line. I don't have all the figures so far, but I do have most and an unwritten goal is to review all the Legends I have. Today's review focuses on a figure that I've had for several months now, but has always been pushed aside when it review time comes. Well, today is your day Hacksaw!

WWE Basic, Michelle McCool - Review

Once upon a time the WWE produced female wrestlers that stood out. Some were beautiful, some were ugly, some were more hardcore than the male wrestlers. Today, most of the female wrestlers (referred to as "Divas") appear cut from the same mold. They look more like fashion models than warriors of the squared circle. Consequently, their in-ring ability is usually poor, save a few exceptional specimens. But the current crop of Divas seems to fit in with the overall watered-down programming WWE is producing. That doesn't mean I don't like collecting them in plastic form, though! Today we're looking at one of these young ladies, Michelle McCool.
